|Not Worth Going|
Let's look at the rest of Allison's 2011 WGPC lineup:
Of course there are Bill Zender and Sal Piacente, the same one-plus-one combination that adds up to the same bullshit we've seen each of the past five years. At least at the conference, Zender doesn't have to email you with his stock line, "I still have seats available for my game protection training seminar in your area..." He can tell you at the beginning, middle and end of his presentation, which I'm sure he will.
And Piacente (who calls himself "Sal the Hitman") can wow you with his tired card tricks before he takes the podium with some more stuff which will hardly outdo his card tricks. Back at the 2007 WGPC, Piacente did a presentation on high-tech digital cheating. I, for one, wondered how Piacente knew so much on this subject given it had nothing to do with his past. Did he really know the ins and outs of high-tech cheating or did Allison have him take a brush-up course to get him ready for his gig? What do you think?
Next we have Jason England who for this edition of Allison's conference is being billed a slot cheat expert who is going to take you inside the mind of a slot cheat. That's a LAUGH! Gimme a break! Jason England is just another card trickster who knows some magic. How all of a sudden did he become a slot cheat expert?
Then there's a guy called Todd Morris who is going to talk about some fancy electronic gadgets that might or might not be applicable to casino game protection. I do not know much about him and have never met him, so I will let this one go.
Sitting in on a panel calling its presentation "The Incident Reports" is Darren Hoke, a casino surveillance director from a minor casino property in Louisiana. Hoke is another one of Allison's grinders who makes the rounds on his casino game protection "circuit."
